Golf parallels life in that the only way to escape rough patches is to aggressively swing a club at something. Witness pros powering through obstacles with today’s GrouponLive deal to the Allianz Championship golf tournament at the The Old Course at Broken Sound in Boca Raton on Saturday, February 11. For $51, you get a golf package for one (an $85 value), which includes:
- General admission to tournament starting at 9 a.m.
- Admission to the Grapes on the Green party, starting at 3 p.m. across from the 18th green
- Commemorative wine glass
At the Allianz Championship, 78 top Champions Tour pro players drive, chip, and putt along the undulating Old Course at Broken Sound for a $1.7 million purse. On February 11, during the second round of championship play, last year’s winner, Tom Lehman, defends his crown on a battlefield framed by Florida maple trees, traversed by stone bridges, and strewn with legendary foes such as Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, Fuzzy Zoeller, and an ogre that never replaces its divots. Formidable bunkers and water carries balance the picturesque appeal of the course’s cleverly designed greens and chase off any wandering landscape painters.
At 3 p.m., ticketholders scale the rolling terrain to the island-green-bound 18th hole to watch the day’s final action from the private enclosure of the Grapes on the Green party, where wine flows from international vineyards and labels owned by golf pros such as Arnold Palmer and Fred Couples. Appetizers from Max’s Grille, Assiaggo del Forno, and other top area restaurants complement the rich nectars. As the three-hour party progresses, live entertainment and impromptu ballads to the day’s winners soundtrack special appearances by golf legends and a special VIP experience auction. Demonstrating that its philanthropy extends beyond the free slices it serves to hungry oak trees, the Allianz tournament donates its proceeds to the Boca Raton Regional Hospital and other charities.
